The Android SDK Upgrade Assistant is a tool in Android Studio that helps you
the API level that your app targets. It's important to keep your
targetSdkVersion up to date so you can use the platform's latest features. The
Android SDK Upgrade Assistant is available in Android Studio Giraffe and higher.
The Android SDK Upgrade Assistant helps you save time and effort when updating
- For each migration step, it highlights the major breaking changes and how to address them.
It tries to filter the full list of changes to only show steps relevant to your app. It'll show a step if it's not certain though, so you might still see steps that you can skip.
- For some changes, it pinpoints where exactly in your code the changes need to be made.
To open the Android SDK Upgrade Assistant, go to
Tools > Android SDK Upgrade Assistant. In the Assistant panel, select
the API level that you want to upgrade to for guidance. For the best experience,
you should upgrade
targetSdkVersion values one level at a time.
